The holidays have been hectic for Simpson and her family, as she shared just a few weeks ahead of Thanksgiving that the family was fighting off a series of ailments including "lots of puke, scary high fevers, coughing and a concussion."
In a sweet photo shared on Thanksgiving, Simpson wrote, "Getting a family pic on Thanksgiving was a task, but we did it before the pajama change for the car ride home! I woke up this morning with the continued warm and cozy feeling of gratitude."
"Hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving!" she concluded.0comments
Simpson dealt with a number of health issues while pregnant with Birdie, and after her daughter was born, the designer embarked on a health journey and lost 100 pounds in six months. The 39-year-old worked with with trainer Harley Pasternak, who put her through a program that involved transitioning into a healthier lifestyle.
"The difference between this and the other times was that she worked out, yes, but her transformation was more about what she did on her own time," Pasternak, who has worked with Simpson for 12 years, told PEOPLE at the time. "She was so motivated and positive. She was saying that her body has not belonged to her for the past decade. Not in a bad way, in a positive way — her body has been designated to create life and now it's hers again and she’s going to make it fantastic in a really enjoyable way."
